 New features and fixes in Wildbook 5.5 include: New features and fixes in Wildbook 5.5 include:
-  * MOD: Standardization of PostgreSQL as the required database for Wildbook and removal of Derby and other database support. While Wildbook can technically support a wide array of databases and J2EE servers, we're standardizing on Tomcat and PostgreSQL for Wildbook 5.5 and all versions moving forward. We are also now highly recommending running Wildbook on Ubuntu Linux servers ​in [[https://​aws.amazon.com/​ec2|Amazon'​s EC2 service]]. This also means that PostgreSQL must be installed and preconfigured for Wildbook to run.+  * MOD: Standardization of PostgreSQL as the required database for Wildbook and removal of Derby and other database support.
